Whammy Bar Obstruction
« on: March 03, 2017, 01:04:37 AM »
So my newly working whammy bar comes with a new problem of it's own. When the middle knob, tone control/coil tap, is lifted for cool tap, the bar will not clear the knob - it get stuck. It also gets stuck on the height of the volume knob (which seems to sit higher than it should).

Anybody else's knobs get in the way of their bar?
Any ideas?

Just a wild guess, but did someone shorten the part of the bar that goes into the bridge?  I remember when I got my fly, I had been used to bars that were a little "lower".
